  1. In the original PlayStation version, Dark Knight was not a generic job, but a special job unique to the guest character, Goffard Gaffgarion. In the The War of the Lions version, his job name is Fell Knight to distinguish it from the generic Dark Knight job.

Special jobs[]

These jobs are available as a controllable character after acquiring them along the storyline's progression or as a sidequest. Their special job replaces the base Squire job. Guests can modify their equipment and abilities in between battle sessions. However, they cannot be controlled, nor can they participate in non-storyline battles. After the character joins the party, they are fully controlled in any battle.

Enemy jobs[]

Other jobs[]

The following jobs are story-related jobs used during the cutscenes and serve no purpose in battle as the majority of them possess no action abilities. Curiously, the developers did take time to give them a job description.
